New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Saturday, July 4. C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Yankees | Brian McCann out again vs. lefty

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:14:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. C J.R. Murphy is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid McCann ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all formats Thursday. He is having a solid campaign with 29 runs, 11 home runs, 45 RBI and a .275/.342/.483 slash line. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) plays sparingly and offers little upside, so FantasyScore players should likely aim higher, especially against Keuchel. At best, Murphy is a desperation source of cap relief.

New York Yankees C J.R. Murphy went 3-for-4 with a game-winning, two-run double against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) hadn't done much at the plate as Brian McCann's backup prior to Sunday, and he is nothing more than a shot-in-the-dark play at FantasyScore.

Yankees | No Brian McCann against lefty

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:35:58 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Tuesday, June 2. C J.R. Murphy receives the nod and is hitting eighth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery.

Fantasy Tip: Even against a pitcher making his major league debut tonight, Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) shouldn't excite FantasyScore users. The catcher is hitting .205 (8-for-39) with no homers and three RBI on the year.
